Why stay here ...

Set in a quiet, simple and spacious location, Stover Club Site lies next to a beautiful country park on the edge of Dartmoor. If you crave a tranquil break and a wealth of lovely scenic walks, this is the ideal caravan site for your holiday. The Stover Park itself offers a variety of walks - you can choose secure expeditions guided by the Park staff or if you fancy something more challenging the wilder terrains of Dartmoor nearby are waiting to be discovered.

Visitors to Stover Club Site can enjoy the other aspects of Dartmoor by following the nature trail through a lovely valley to see Becky Falls. You can also opt for a leisurely drive to Canonteign for another country park well worth visiting as well as a host of delightful waterfalls. There is also a memorable Heritage Trail near the caravan park called the Templer Way; it runs from Haytor right through to the sea at Shaldon.

Less than a mile away is Trago Mills Family shopping and Leisure Park which includes super karts, trawler boats, steam and model railways plus an interactive animal enclosure so there is something for everyone nearby.

Digital TV signal booster in operation (no lead required).

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

Walking notes:

Dartmoor National Park is the largest and wildest area of open country in Southern England, with over 368 square miles of moorland, forest and woodland. Stover Country Park is adjacent to the site, via a public footpath to the rear of the site and along a disused railway track. The park has a lake, walking routes, nature centre, aerial walkway and is great for dogs.

Check out our ViewRanger walk.

Love this site!

The site wardens at Stover are helpful and keep the place looking incredible.This is the most well-maintained site we have ever stayed on - including non-club sites. Its very nicely laid out, plenty of room on all awning pitches. The site is surrounded by woods, and although next to Stover Country Park it has its own gorgeous mini dog walk in woods with a stream running through it - dogs are allowed off the lead and it's fabulous for the nosy little dogs! The site itself is tranquil but It is off a main road- if you don't live near traffic - we suggest you pitch up at the far end of the site, away from the entrance where there is nothing but squirrels to distract you if you want to get away from it all. - the benefits of the location include quick access to Dartmoor, Arts and Antiques trails of Bovey Tracey, Ashburton, the market Towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot and not far from the beaches on the South Devon Coast. It's also opposite Stover Golf Club and Trago which has an activity and fairground style amusment park to keep kids happy for hours at circa £5 for the day - inc peacocks. For us, the benefits of the location far outweigh traffic and lack of shower/toilet block. The fish and chip van on the Friday evenings is the best fish and chips we've had from a pop-up! TV signal quality like anywhere surrounded by tall trees, takes a bit of wrangling with your own aerial - sometimes we get forty channels others over 120, there is an aeriel booster in the centre of the site as well.

Clean but noisy

Stayed here for three nights mid July. The wardens are friendly and the site is very well kept and spotless. It is described as tranquil in the handbook but I didn’t find it so. It is adjacent to a very busy road with heavy traffic which builds up from around 5am and continues till well after 10pm. Not one I’ll visit again.

A lovely welcoming site

We stayed for just one night and what a lovely spacious site it is. Very friendly welcoming staff who keep the site immaculate. No toilets or showers. A lovely short dog walk area where they can be let off lead and the bonus is it isn't muddy as the paths are covered with wood chips. Yes it is by a busy road but dont let that put you off. We were on a non awning pitch and were closest to the road but it did not bother us in the slightest. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere with no noise around at all then you should give this lovely site a visit. Plenty to do in the area with Stover Country Park right next door. We would not hesitate to stay again. I will be putting a very short video tour of the site on youtube.
